This April includes a Friday the 13th, typically known as the unluckiest day of the year. This might be the perfect night to break out your secret scary-movie-lover side and binge on a few of the best. If you are a Netflix user, you won't have access to any of the movies from the Friday the 13th series, including the ones about Freddy and Jason, but there are still plenty of movies to watch on Friday the 13th that will scare the heck out of you.
There are people who are so superstitious and afraid of Friday the 13th that they won't leave the house. Others won't fly or do anything risky. Others just think it's a great day for a horror flick or anything scary or spooky. Scary movies bring about an adrenaline rush associated with great fear. The good news is the fear is based on fiction and you aren't actually in jeopardy, so you can simply enjoy the adrenaline high.
If you are in search of a good fright, but don't want to head over to the movie theatre to catch John Krasinski and Emily Blunt's new movie, The Quiet Place, pull out your laptop or your smart TV stream something from Netflix — there are all sorts of choices that are totally appropriate for this "holiday". And if you don't get through them this time, there's another Friday the 13th coming in July.
